image for A Ukrainian Steals $25,000 In Bitcoin From Russian Dark Web Drug Market And Gives It To A Kyiv Charity

A Ukrainian says that he broke into the Solaris drug market’s master wallet and diverted its funds to a Ukrainian humanitarian charity.

This Christmas, Ukrainian cyber intelligence expert Alex Holden is giving back to his homeland.

This wallet was used by buyers and dealers to deposit and withdraw funds, acting as the site’s cryptocurrency exchange.

With money quickly going in and out of the wallet, it rarely contained more than 3 bitcoin, worth $50,000, Holden said.

“Maybe the Kremlin won’t defend their country’s drug trade and fix the drug problems instead of invading Ukraine.”.

The attacks could have an impact beyond the dark web drug trade in Russia.

He noted that shortly after the RT interview, the hackers said in a Telegram post that they had received financial contributions from Solaris. »

Two other Confederate officers in the commission’s crosshairs were West Point grads P.G.T. Beauregard and William Hardee. »

Patriot missiles to Ukraine: US regaining escalation dominance?

Authored by

The addition of the Patriot missile system will offer a long-range capability for defending Ukraine from cruise and ballistic missiles, intercepting missiles within a 100-mile radius and at heights up to 79,000ft.

Russia has already said that the Patriot system would be a “legitimate target” for attacks, and warned that the delivery of the system would be seen as an escalation.

A strictly tactical implication of this would be that the enhanced range of Iranian supplied missiles would require the increased capabilities of the Patriot missile system to offer effective defence. »
